We’re sorry for being so quiet in here yesterday. Yesterday morning we found Lauro collapsed again on the floor. However, it was not like last time. He had no anus prolapse, was eating and drinking fine, but just couldn’t get up by himself. As some of you know, Lauro is one of the oldest donkeys we have here and it’s clear that age is catching up to him more and more. The vet will be coming out to do some blood tests on him to see if he’s still in good enough health and there’s nothing going on inside. We want to keep him as comfortable and pain free for as long as possible, but we also have to come to the conclusion that our forever effort to get him up and keep him standing (which takes usually a good few hours each time now as we don’t have any equipment to lift animals) might not be what’s the best for him if he starts to suffer from pain. We hope you’ll keep praying with us for him that he’ll stay in good shape. Thank you for your understanding. 💖 #donkeysofinstagram #fieldsoffreedom
You know that time you were just casually standing at the kitchen bench peeling potatoes, feeling super organised because you were prepping for dinner at 3 pm in the afternoon and you look up and see a couple of donkeys walking in your backyard
Yep, true story, it certainly was a fun way to spend an afternoon 😂😂😂

A cold rainy dark day is a good time to flashback to a sunny time at the end of August. Rotational grazing the boys was a big win win win this summer & one of my favorite things we've done on the farm. So many benefits all leading to balanced ecosystems all around. Ruminants stay healthier & happier on fresh grazing every day & in turn add health to the soil. The chickens follow & do their chicken thing scratching & spreading the natural horse fertilization & picking up yummy nutritious treats for themselves. The plants, soil, organisms & everything all benefit & gave me little tiny high fives 🐛 all while the mower & weed eater collected dust. Seriously, hardly ever mowed, I put the portable fence around everything & against buildings & they trimmed it all. Please google more on this regenerative movement & see how mob grazing is making a big impact on the overall health of the planet. So many wins for all!

I am devastated to have to tell you that Tommy Llama has passed away. He simply got weaker and weaker until he went to sleep and didn't wake up. This was a precipitous decline although he has apparently been sick for some time. The vet did find that he died of a mycobacterium infection. This is something that he most likely had for a long time - probably months. It has nothing to do with an exposure to toxins or the burns on his feet. Because he had the infection for so long, his body compensated for it and his symptoms weren't noticeable. However, eventually, the damage it was doing to his kidneys reached the tipping point and his decline was dramatic.
We cannot believe that we have lost our sweet Tommy Llama only five days after losing our precious Lula who was Tommy's very first friend on the farm. Our hearts are broken as we will miss them here but I am imagining them together again. I'm sure Lula was happy to see an old friend and Tommy was relieved to see her.

Premier double couché sur demande 😍😍 Je sais pas envers laquelle des deux je dois être la plus reconnaissante. Celle qui adore qu'on passe du temps allongées par terre à faire des câlins... Ou celle qui n'est pas chaude du tout mais qui prend sur elle et le fait clairement pour me faire plaisir... En tout cas elles se complètent. Et elles me COMBLENT ❤🖤
